The Commonwealth and the NO MORE Foundation launched the ’16 Days of Actions: For the women in my life’ blog series on 25 November.
Running alongside the UN’s 16 days of activism against gender-based violence from 25 November to 10 December, the series is part of the Commonwealth Says NO MORE campaign, to help end violence against women and girls.
The blogs highlight best practices from across the 54 member countries in tackling incidents of violence against women and girls, delivering support services to victims, and protecting survivors.
The series portrays multi-disciplinary national responses in addressing violence and supporting wider efforts to achieve gender equality.
Experts from the Secretariat author each blog, illustrating the novelty, scope and impact of good practices in place in member countries.
These practices build on the unique experience of the 54 member countries, representing one-third of humanity and embodying every culture, faith and socio-economic landscape.
This means a practice which has worked in one Commonwealth nation, can be replicated and scaled-up in other countries with similar contexts.
